Increasing human pressure on water resources means that we impact fish populations more than ever before, yet we rely on fish as source of food, enjoyment, regulators of water quality, and indicators of ecosystem health. At the same time, field studies of fish communities expand to new areas and new and more sophisticated monitoring schemes are deployed. All this means that new questions and information on the role of fish in lakes and reservoirs are accumulating rapidly. EcoFiL 2014 conference aims to advance their synthesis, continuing a long tradition of limnological and fisheries-oriented meetings organized at the Biology Centre of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic.

EcoFiL 2014 aims to summarize recent knowledge on:

  • Fish as indicators of ecological state of waterbodies (including ecological quality and potential)
  • Effects of environmental stressors on fish
  • Fish and food webs (including trophic interactions / top-down effects)
  • Population ecology of fish
  • Management and monitoring of fish populations and communities
  • Fish and ecosystem services (including food provisioning and leisure activities)
  • Fish as object of protection and conservation
  • Ecological aspects of recreational and commercial fisheries
